"We need help from board members to write a letter of intent to the Sisters of St.
Joseph Charities," according to Minnora Community Center President Wanda
Richards. Richards said she asked board members Larry Cottrell, Donna Jordan and
others to help with the grant project, and they declined.|
The Cottrell-Jordan group is upset with the management of the center by Richards,
and have called for her resignation.
Richards said she is asking the Calhoun Commission for help to resolve the
"I asked for help (dissident board members) to do work on the sewage treatment
pond, get some rock and stabilize a problem caused by muskrats and turtles" and
they declined. "They are on the board to complain, not help the center," she said.
Richards said all members of the board attended the brief meeting held last week.
A treasurer's report and financial statement was delivered, she said. "After refusing to
take any responsibility, Larry Cottrell asked to make comments as the meeting
ended," she continued. "I even asked David Corson, who is a good letter writer, to
help with a grant," and she said he declined.
"More than 400 signatures have been obtained requesting Minnie Hamilton Health
Care Center to bring medical services back to the community," Hicks said.
The next board meeting is being scheduled for September.
